August OMG Check In

All in all August was a good month! Our Evacuation Alert was lifted so I was able to go to my studio for a few days and had sewing time almost every day. My goal for August was to keep trying to finish up some projects: 1. Finish my Orange You Glad Blog Hop ProjectContinue reading “August OMG Check In”

My Trip to the Studio

It was so wonderful to finally be able to take a trip to the studio. My ferry was running and the wait was short. It was so nice to take the ferry instead of having to drive the long way around. It was a good day to travel, not too hot and the smoke wasContinue reading “My Trip to the Studio”

Felicia’s World Batik Scrappy Fun

It has been an interesting month in my part of the world. A couple of weeks ago I found myself able to spend time at the studio where I decided I needed to try working with pantos for the first time. In the week I was there I managed to finish 5 quilts on theContinue reading “Felicia’s World Batik Scrappy Fun”

Friday Finishing Fun

I’m sitting here with a lap full of fun today and counting this quilt as a finish. I was at the studio a week ago to spend quality time with my longarm. This quilt was quilted with running feathers using white Essentials thread from Connecting Threads. My Avante loves this thread! I used a beautifulContinue reading “Friday Finishing Fun”

May OMG Check In

My first goal was to get this quilt finished for my granddaughter to gift to her best friend. The push for me to travel to the studio was hearing my DIL and grands will be in Alberta this week. Done and mailed! The quilt was made from a pattern, Waltzing With Bears by Sandra fromContinue reading “May OMG Check In”

Another UFO Finished

Several months ago I was lucky enough to do a pattern test for Sandra of MMM Quilts. Her pattern Waltzing With Bear was fun to do since the pattern was so well written and can be found here. My granddaughter had fallen in love with this quilt and asked if I could add to itContinue reading “Another UFO Finished”

Lost in Space

I have been having a week that meant I have been out of touch this week. Apparently WordPress lost all of the links I had posted on my last posts so I will try to get that fixed ASAP. Appointments and meetings filled my time along with family news of Covid-19 testing and quarantining whileContinue reading “Lost in Space”

I Love Thursday #39

Here it is the start of a new month and it’s time for a group of creative bloggers to share our gratitude posts over on LeeAnna’s blog Not Afraid of Color. It’s always fun to head over and see what brings joy in to people’s lives. For me, one of the biggest joys is family.Continue reading “I Love Thursday #39”

Have You Heard the Word Gobsmacked?

Well that’s what I am after reading Sue and Roseanne’s fun blog post today at Home sewn By Us. They received TWO nominations for the Outstanding Blogger Award. TWO blogger friends developed five questions and added them to their nomination list. In my opinion it is so perfectly deserved. Then I got to the bottomContinue reading “Have You Heard the Word Gobsmacked?”

The Eagle has Landed!

I’m finally finished my quilt for a very dear friend. I learned a lot making this quilt; to listen to the longarm and how it feels and sounds when everything is perfect. I learned that unquilting takes days to undo what can be done in an hour. 😉 I also learned that having the perfectContinue reading “The Eagle has Landed!”

This Week’s Goals

Here is my list of what is happening in my quilting life; time spent, goals, stash and PHD Report. I was MIA last week since I was completely tied up with travelling to my friend’s studio and getting the longarm set up and working. I felt confident travelling to my quilty partner’s home since sheContinue reading “This Week’s Goals”

Look at What’s Going On!

This is my To Do Tuesday #42 I haven’t had much that I was able to share this week. I wound up going to my favourite LQS and loading up my car: and then went to my quilty friend’s place. She has a studio with the space I need to set my baby up. TheContinue reading “Look at What’s Going On!”

Weekly Wondering

In my heart I had hoped that 2021 was to be the year of calm and intelligent conversation. While understanding that the vaccine (did everyone forget that viruses mutate?) would not bring immediate results, I had hoped that more people would stay home, following protocols to help stop the spread with 2 mutations (at least)Continue reading “Weekly Wondering”

Every year Patty at Elm Street Quilts hosts a monthly linky party. It has been a great motivator for me to move projects along so I will be continuing to post my linkups with goals and finishes each month. It’s so satisfying to write about progress each month. Accountability helps! 😉 This was my listContinue reading “January OMG”
